The Zeon ace, Char Aznable, earned himself the nickname “the Red Comet” for his combat skills during the Battle of Loum and his custom red Zaku. Char would often been seen in his distinctive red uniform and masked helmet.
It was Char who confirmed the existence of the Federation’s Project V and its secret weapon, the Gundam. Char would become the archenemy to the Federation war hero Amuro Ray.
Unbeknownst to Zeon, Char had been plotting to destroy the Zabi dynasty. When he lured Garma Zabi to his fatal demise, Char confessed his treachery to the shocked Zeon commander. However, what actually filled Garma with horror in his final moments was when Char revealed his true identity: Casval Rem Deikun, the long lost son of Zeon Zum Deikun.
